It was a spring-like day in January with temps in the low 50s.
But there was lots of wind, so it did feel colder.

A big crowd for January of 78 showed up, 37 of whom were new runners
for the Nielson Challenge.  Thus the word must be getting out of this
little gem of a run.  Or maybe many people are following up on their
New Year's Resolutions.

Of the veteran Nielson runners, Kevin Wood had the most improved time
for the month with a solid 2:45 under his handicap.  Kevin is a repeat
winner and now has a steak of two consecutive winning months.  You 'da
man, Kevin!  Now the pressure is on for a three-peat.

Join us again in February, same channel, same time, same place ... same winner?
